Casio America has unveiled a line of Edifice chronographs in partnership with the Honda Racing Formula 1 team, which it is sponsoring this year.
The ECBS100HR-1A Honda Racing Championship White Edition pays homage to the original RA271 racecar of 1964, the first year of Honda’s participation in F1.
Its dial adopts the Championship White colour of the car’s body, and it picks up the red used in the team’s livery for accents that complement a two-tone genuine leather band.
The white outer surface of the band represents the body of the RA271, while the red inner surface represents the Honda Racing Spirit.
The watch face is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a checkered flag pattern is printed on the underside of the watch crystal along the outer periphery of the watch dial to honor Honda’s racing glory.
The solar-powered watch has Bluetooth connectivity to an Edifice Connected app for auto time adjustment, phone finder countdown timer and stopwatch with data transfer.
It is available for pre-order now with delivery in November priced at $350.
